More printer issues Canon and Zerox printers

I am migrating printers from a legacy Solaris 2.6 environment to a
Solaris 10 zone, maybe you can help me figure this out. I have the
configuraztion on the solaris 2.6 system, I need to know how to deploy
it on solaris 10.

# lpstat -p lp4x1se -l
printer lp4x1se is idle. enabled since Sep 15 10:10 2010. available.
       Remote Name: lp4x1se
       Remote Server: lp4x1se

I cannot telnet to the remote server, it says connection refused.
Please tell me what to do next.

Find someone familiar with migrating legacy systems and hire then for a 
couple of days.  If you value your time, this will be very cost effective!

This is not a problem of migration legacy apps, this is a straight
solaris 10 issue and the information regarding the setup on 2.6 is for
someone to help shed some light.

Good point - usenet is a place for discussion and I don't see the OP
deviating from any usenet etiquette, telling them to hire someone is
not really within the gamut of this usenet groups agenda. I wish I
could help the OP. If you know the answer post - don't give
suggestions like "hire someone".......that is not good usent
etiquette, one may post as many questions as one likes as long as they
follow etiquette and are within the realm of comp.unix.solaris.

It happens all the time here.  There are many Windows Admins who blunder 
into these groups and haven't a clue on the first thing on managing a 
Solaris box.  And they want help with EVERYTHING.  To them, I frequently 
point them to the docs and say "read up" and post relevant questions.  
Or hire someone to help you get over the hump.

This group is very much a "do your homework and ask intelligent 
questions" place.  People with expectations on having someone do their 
work for them are sent packing.

I see no problem telling someone in over their head to hire someone.  
For old-school stuff (my SunOS 4.1.4 system won't boot), IMO, news is 
beyond the scope of helping these people.

Can no other clients reach 515/tcp on the print server or is it just
your Solaris 2.6 zone?

BTW what are the outputs of these commands on your S10 print server:
$ cat /etc/lp/printers/canon/configuration
$ cat /etc/lp/printers/xerox/configuration

Thanks for your continued help.
# cat /etc/lp/printers/canon/configuration
cat: cannot open /etc/lp/printers/canon/configuration

telnet to the IP's on port 515 works, I'm just not sure what these
IP's are - are they printers or print servers. I cannot telnet to them
on port 23......

On your print server, what is the name of your Canon printer?
Have you configured the Canon and Xerox printers on your print
server just as you configured your HP's last week?

I'm going to guess, no.
What are the model numbers for your Canon and Xerox printers?

515/tcp on the print server. The Solaris 10 system on which you ran
all those lpadmin(1M) commands last week for your HP printers.

Thanks for replying. This is a little different problem. The way I
configure printers on S10 is that I get the IP of the printer from
it's configuration on the S6 box.
For this particular printer, on the S6 box I see this:
# lpstat -p lp4x1se -l
 printer lp4x1se is idle. enabled since Sep 15 10:10 2010. available.
         Remote Name: lp4x1se
         Remote Server: lp4x1se

Now the naming scheme is a little bothersome because whoever named
them, named the printer same as the remote print server.

So I tried to telnet to the remote print server lp4x1se in order to
get the name of the printer configured on it so that I can give the
command lpadmin -p <printername> -s<print server>!<name of printer on
print server> on the s10 zone. But I cannot telnet to the print server
lp4x1se on port 23, I can telnet to it at port 515!!

What are your Canon and Xerox models?

Solaris 2.6.

That's not queer.

So what happens when you try to print from the S10 global zone
when you have configured the printer as so:
# lpadmin -x lp4x1se
# lpadmin -p lp4x1se -s lp4x1se!lp4x1se
$ /usr/sfw/bin/a2ps -r -P lp4x1se /etc/passwd

If the printer understands telnet, it will listen only on one or two 
ports.  Telneting using the default port for an interactive session will 
almost certainly NOT work.

If you don't know which port(s) the printer listens on, you could try 
running a "Port Scan" program.   I found a port scan program at Yale a 
few years ago.  If it's still available it should do the job for you.
Note that indiscriminate use of such a program will earn you the hatred 
of your fellow men, and, perhaps, legal action!

Once you figure out the port to use you should be able to telnet to the 
printer using that port, type "Print me!<ctrl-L>", and the printer 
should respond by printing "Print me!"

If you can't find a port scan program,  you could try flattery  and 
bribery to get me to bestir myself and find my copy.  Bribery will 
probably be more effective!
